Description

Today, we speak to Chaker Khazaal, a Palestinian-Canadian author and entrepreneur who opened the Startups Without Borders Summit and left the entire audience shocked: he presented the world’s first interactive silent speech.

Born as a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, Chaker immigrated to Canada, being one of four recipients of the Global Leader of Tomorrow Award. Having graduated from York University in Toronto, Chaker quickly became a public figure as an author, a journalist, and an entrepreneur.

His trilogy, Confessions of a War child, was inspired by true narratives of war children. His new book — Tale of Tala — is a descriptive narrative of the plight of refugees that became a Best Seller in 2018.
In this episode, Chaker talks about going from refugee to best-selling author, finding courage to venture into war zones, and deciding to do the world first silent speech.
